Today I Drove With The Sun In My Face
Today I drove with the sun in my face
It felt wonderfully warm as I left her place
To know that she was gone, and that I had been man enough
Man enough to see what she needed, not what I wanted.
Today I watched as the miles clicked by
Knowing that each moment took her further from me
But in its own way brought me closer to her
Because she is becoming more her and I solidified more of what makes me, me.
The thoughts of her and who and me and who
Knowing what was and that which lay deep within
Knowing that the distance and people could never
Never dilute what was, what was a special thing
Each moment changing things forever
Knowing that I had put her first, not me
Watching the digits fly by, trying to summon the words
Trying to collect my thoughts and control the sadness
Today I drove with the sun in my face.
The last morning that I saw Patti and left not knowing what would be.
The sun in my face as I drove into uncertainty.
